I was reading a book on Luis Buñuel's _L'âge d'or_ last night and came across the following nuggets (or two different chemical responses).

Luis Buñuel: "Considered objectively, copulation seems both risible and tragic to me. It's so very like death."

Salvador Dalí: "One loves entirely when one is prepared to eat the shit of the beloved."

Has anyone seen _L'âge d'or_, by the way?
